Socialtext Offers Free Corporate Alumni Networks

It is awesome working for a company that is creative, fun to be part of, cutting edge and in-demand. It is more awesome when the company does altruistic things to help out people impacted by the current economic crisis.To that end, I’m really excited that Socialtext is offering free Corporate Alumni Networks to any organization that recently had to lay-off any of its employees.As Ross explains: Today, Socialtext is meeting this latent need with a free Corporate Social Network offer for the 2009 Recession. Any former employee and HR director of a company that reduced its workforce by 5% or more in the last year can create a private Corporate Social Network for free by applying here. Please note that this offer does not include free user support. We ask for an HR contact to be involved to encourage a constructive tone, enable the HR department to share informational resources and so the company can leverage the network over time for connections, knowledge and expertise. However, as was our experience with the PeopleSoft Alumni Network, the energy and participation will likely be driven by the grass-roots.
